Is your shifting roughly or “slamming” in to gear?
Does your manual transmission have trouble shifting in to certain gears?
Does your vehicle at any point slip out of the gear it was in?
These may be signs of transmission problems. An automatic transmission depends on the transmission fluid to operate reliably. Manual transmissions rely on the transmission fluid to lubricate the gears and keep the system shifting properly. Over time the transmission fluid brakes down and becomes a dark color with a burnt smell. The transmission fluid should be serviced regularly according to your vehicles service intervals. Some vehicles also have a transmission filter that needs to be serviced on a regular maintenance interval. Most newer vehicles no longer have a transmission dipstick to check the fluid level because most manufacturers have moved to a closed transmission fluid system to keep out outside atmosphere. Let our technicians service your transmission to keep it running reliably.
